34-year-old Pastor Emmanuel of Eagles Prophetic Gospel Centre, Gombe state, has been arrested for using a hot electric iron to burn different body parts of a 10-year-old boy.
According to Sun newspaper, the cleric revealed that the victim, Daniel James is the son of an ex prostitute who became a born again Christian as a result of a preaching outreach by his church.
He said that the boy had stolen which has been his habitual character.
“So on that day i took another dimension of punishment, i used electric iron to threaten him and it burnt him” he said.
Reports state that the pastor had taken the kid to live with him after the church helped his mother find a place to live and a business to sustain herself and Daniel’s elder brother who is 19-year-old.
“They lived close to an Almajiri school and the boy always had problem with the Almajiris. So, i took him to live with me. I made a mistake of not reporting him to the police
I always report his character to the mother before i decide to punish him on my own. In the curch, everybody knows me to be a very disciplined man” the pastor said.
